Keeping your word takes work which is effort that we don't want to put in sometimes.

I am beginning to realize this in reality. My desk.... you should see it. I have all these projects l am trying to finish before we close the office. So entering some thought into my blog is actually a sacrifice. But l am now living a reality. Dreams will be just that if we don't begin to pay the price of living them out.

Talking about dreams. Our Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai has done all Kenyans proud. Not only us but the whole world and especially the girl child. This dynamic woman has put her money where her mouth is.Literally. She has walked the talk. And now as she sits in the presence of royalty and indeed celebrities and everyone wanting a piece of her, l am reminded of what the queen of talk show Oprah Winfrey once said;

"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo,but what you want is someone who will take the  bus when the limo breaks down."

How true.

When you are trying to make a dream translate into reality it is truly trying. Ask me, l know. I am trying to write a paper hoping to get it published in January. The research is not so interesting. The reading and documenting discussions is tough. But that is the price that has to be paid. Honorable Wangari paid a higher one to get to where she is at now. It would be purdent to remember the old saying, No pain, No gain every time we want to get the best yet with short cuts. I am remembering that every moment l live on.
